Surface-mount Device (SMD)

Surface-mount Device (SMD)

Here at Rhopoint Components, we offer a range of highly accurate surface-mount thermosensitive resistors from Alpha Electronics. These ultra-precision resistors utilise metal foil technology to achieve resistivity values changing linearly (or almost linearly) as the temperature changes, which makes them a perfect choice for use in cold junction references for thermocouples, temperature compensation and temperature sensing applications. The Alpha thermosensitive resistors are generally available in any resistance value within a given range and with a choice of different tolerances, while the most popular values are available from stock for quick delivery.

Alpha NMP Series

The NMP ultra-precision thermosensitive resistor series from Alpha Electronics offers a highly accurate device that has a resistivity which varies linearly with temperature change in a surface mount package. By utilising Alpha's Bulk Metal® foil resistor technology, they are able to produce these resistors that are ideally designed for temperature detection, providing a small size and rapid response.

  • Ultra-precision thermosensitive surface-mount resistor
  • Stocked in 50Ω, 100Ω, 250Ω and 350Ω resistance values with tolerances of ±0.5% and ±2.0%
  • Available in any resistance between 5Ω and 250Ω
  • Tolerance options from ±5.0% down to ±0.5% available
  • Linear +6660 ±2% ppm/°C TCR characteristic (from 0 to +100°C)
  • Response time of 0.4 seconds
  • Maximum working voltage of 50V
  • Power rating of 0.1W (at +70°C)
  • Maximum rated operating temperature +70°C
  • Working temperature from -65°C up to +125°C

These Alpha NMP ultra-precision thermosensitive resistors are made of material only a few µm thick and respond rapidly to temperature changes. Strict control of foil composition maintains uniform quality without fluctuation of temperature characteristics of resistance. They are produced by the same fine photo-etching technology used in other metal foil precision resistors from Alpha.

Typical applications for the NMP ultra-precision thermosensitive resistor series include:
  • Cold junction reference for thermocouples
  • Temperature compensation in load cells
  • Temperature compensation device in semiconductor circuits
  • Temperature sensing devices
